The Nordic Adoption Council Members' meeting Friday 28th September 2018
at Park Inn Radisson Airport Hotel Copenhagen

Dear NAC Members,

The Nordic Meeting in Helsinki in September 2017 agreed that NAC normally will arrange a Members' Meeting every second year to promote practical collaboration, networking and sharing of experiences of those involved in the every day service provision and practical work of the NAC member organizations. With this change to NAC's former meeting practices NAC is promoting closer collaboration of NAC member organizations and higher use of the extensive experience available through our organizations practical work.

We invite NAC members to join in the first Members' meeting in Copenhagen on Friday the 28th of September. It will be a one day event to allow as large a participation as possible to our Member organizations. Simultaneously a dinner is available for those who have the possibility to stay longer to continue informal discussions. The topics for the first Members’ meeting are topics given to the board in the Nordic Meeting as working topics for the 2017 – 2019 period.

These topics are –

the practical implications and updating of the Nordic Adoption Approach, -

the support for better home studies and good practices and -

collaboration possibilities in post-adoption service provision.

We plan and prepare this collaborative working day with the aim that it will support networking among member organizations' working teams and add to our joint understanding and search for good practices. As it is the first of its kind, the Members Meeting' will evolve and develop in the years to come.

Please note that we need registrations by 17th August. Reservations are binding after that date.

For questions and more information contact NAC Secretary Ole Bergmann at

Looking very much forward to seeing as many of you as possible in Copenhagen!

Irene Pärssinen-Hentula, chairperson
